IWA Particle Separation Conference

June 15, 2014 - June 18, 2014

Location: Sapporo, Japan

The IWA Particle Separation Conference is a forum for science and technology of particles with a wide size range. It will bring together specialist researchers and professionals from universities, municipals, manufacturers, consulting and other industrial sectors.

Themes of the conference include:

  • • Advances in particle science and characterization and in basic mechanisms of particle separation processes;
  • • Occurrence of natural and synthetic nano- and microparticles in surface waters and wastewaters;
  • • Progress in particle removal technologies, such as coagulation, flocculation, sedimentation, flotation, filtration and low-pressure membranes (ultra- and microfiltration);
  • • Practical use, full-scale experiences and optimization for these removal technologies, including automatic control;
  • • Emerging technologies for particle removal;
  • • New treatment chemicals for particle separation;
  • • Fate, stability and transformation of engineered nanomaterials in urban wastewater system;
  • • Handling of sludge containing nanoparticles; and
  • • Advances of nanotechnology-based applications in the water sector (including polyfunctional membranes, nanocatalysts and reactive nanomaterials).
